企画書・概要 (Abstract of Project Proposal)


 Since the 1990s, Vietnamese agricultural growth has slowed down so that the government has encouraged land transformation to promote urbanization and large-scale agricultural production especially from economic point of view. Changes in land use have brought about many social issues especially in the periphery between rural and urban and rural area, including labor shortage originated from aging and migration, collapse of community, deterioration of natural resources such as land degradation, water shortages, pollution, etc. In this study, we consider this transformation process of land as "land concession" because it is quite difficult for local people to join the development process once land has been enclosed by a large-scale land-holder or developer. To overcome such problems, we will examine Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) model. The research will be undertaken the following steps, 1) Mapping land concession associated with land use change, 2) Data collection on SMEs, and 3) Integrated analysis. Our research findings will be contributed to the argument on land concession or even "land grab" and to preventing expansion of social disparities and inequality especially for vulnerable people.
